I don’t expect them to be “broke in a few years.” In the old days, a President would quietly retire, live modestly, and write his memoirs.

Now, in the age of celebrity presidents with $250,000 speaking engagements after they leave office, the gravy train continues until they finally retire at age 70 or 75. By then, they’ve got hundreds of millions or a billion in the banks.

The whole thing is seemly and corrupt.

These disgusting commie grifters will be made for life.

You said it. Such a contrast are the presidents of today when considering the post-presidential life of a person like U.S. Grant. As corrupt has Grant’s administratoin is reputed to have been, in this, too, Grant seems an amateur comprated to the current infestation. I’m guessing nothing so momentous as Grant’s memiors will be produced by this one.
